Broadcastr Storytelling App Launches

Electric Literature c0-founders Andy Hunter and Scott Lindenbaum introduced the storytelling site Broadcastr at the eBook Summit last year. The beta-version of the site launched this morning.

The storytelling app will let people record audio versions of location-specific stories around the globe–like Foursquare for storytellers. Above, we’ve embedded a video of the eBook Summit presentation.

Check it out: “Just like in human memory, every story is bound to a place.
Whether dishing last night’s details to friends, uncovering local lore, perusing restaurant reviews, listening to travel guides, tuning in to citizen journalism, contemplating oral histories, or sharing hilarious anecdotes, Broadcastr amplifies all our voices. Users can take a GPS-enabled walk as stories about their surroundings stream into their headphones, like a museum tour of the entire world.”
